    Alfred Archer (forthcoming). On Sporting Integrity. Sport, Ethics and Philosophy:1-15.
    It has become increasingly popular for sports <span class='Hi'>fans</span>, pundits, coaches and players to appeal to ideas of ‘sporting integrity’ when voicing their approval or disapproval of some aspect of the sporting world. My goal in this paper will be to examine whether there is any way to understand this idea in a way that both makes sense of the way in which it is used and presents a distinctly ‘sporting’ form of integrity. I will look at three recent high (...)

    Michael Bar-Eli, Yuval Eylon & Amir Horowitz (forthcoming). A Psycho-Philosophical Analysis of Fouls and Intentions in Contact Sports. Sport, Ethics and Philosophy:1-14.
    This paper examines the notion of fouls in sports. In the first part of the paper, we examine some actual distinctions and classifications between different kinds of fouls. In the second part we examine the significance, validity, and justification of these classifications from a normative perspective.The term ‘foul’ evokes negative connotation; some would say—negative normative connotations. Conventional wisdom suggests that typically to commit fouls is, by definition, to go against the rules or principles of the contest. Since sport contests are (...)

    Steffen Borge (forthcoming). Sport Records Are Social Facts. Sport, Ethics and Philosophy:1-12.
    In this paper I address the topic of sport records and concentrate on the ontology of sport records. I argue that sport records are social facts in the sense that sport records not only depend on the physical facts of sport competitions, but also on the attitude we take towards the phenomenon—our attitude is partly constitutive of the phenomenon of sport records. In particular, the Mieto–Wassberg incident and the Larsson–McKee incident show that performance records should also be regarded as social (...)

    Lisa Edwards, Paul Davis & Alison Forbes (forthcoming). Challenging Sex Segregation: A Philosophical Evaluation of the Football Association’s Rules on Mixed Football. Sport, Ethics and Philosophy:1-12.
    The Football Association has been under pressure to allow girls to play in mixed teams since 1978, following 12-year old Theresa Bennett’s application to play with boys in a local league. In 1991, over a decade after Bennett’s legal challenge, the FA agreed to remove its ban on mixed football and introduced Rule C4 in order to permit males and females to play together in competitive matches under the age of 11. More recently, following a campaign by parents, coaches, local (...)

    Jan Halák (forthcoming). Towards the World: Eugen Fink on the Cosmological Value of Play. Sport, Ethics and Philosophy:1-12.
    According to Eugen Fink, a thorough elucidation of the meaning of play has the capacity to lead us towards an understanding of the world as a totality. In order to go beyond Plato’s understanding of play as an inferior copy of serious action, Fink provides an analysis of the cultic game. This form of playing cannot be said to be the origin of all play, but it enables us to demonstrate how the act of playing transcends circumscribed beings inside the (...)

    Moira Howes (forthcoming). Challenging Fitness Ideology: Why an Adventurous Approach to Physical Activity is Better for Well-Being. Sport, Ethics and Philosophy:1-16.
    In this paper, I argue that adventurous approaches to physical activity can contribute more to well-being than approaches that have been shaped by fitness ideology. To defend this claim, I draw on work in philosophy and psychology concerning internal goods and intrinsic motivation, respectively. This work shows that motivating ourselves intrinsically and cultivating the internal goods of physical activity can contribute significantly to well-being. Unfortunately, the discourse and images associated with fitness culture tend to undermine intrinsic motivation and (...)

    Christopher Johnson & Jason Taylor (forthcoming). Rejecting Technology: A Normative Defense of Fallible Officiating. Sport, Ethics and Philosophy:1-13.
    There is a growing consensus in both academic and popular reflections on sport that if the accuracy of officiating can be improved by technology, then such assistance ought to be introduced. Indeed, apart from certain practical concerns about technologizing officiating there are few normative objections, and those that are voiced are often poorly articulated and quickly dismissed by critics. In this paper, we take up one of these objections – what is referred to as the loss of the human element (...)

  13. Christopher Martin & Oren Ergas (forthcoming). Mindfulness, Sport and the Body: The Justification of Physical Education Revisited. Sport, Ethics and Philosophy:1-14.
    This paper offers a preliminary account of the educative potential of mindfulness by revisiting the long-debated status of physical activity and sport as educationally worthwhile. We argue that previous attempts in the tradition of analytic philosophy of education to offer a justification of physical activity and sport have not been sufficiently grounded in the most distinctive feature of those activities—the body. As an alternative, we claim that the theory and practice of body-based mindfulness can explain how physical activity can satisfy (...)

    S. P. Morris (forthcoming). Moral Luck and the Talent Problem. Sport, Ethics and Philosophy:1-12.
    My objective in this project is to explore the concept of moral luck as it relates to sports. I am especially interested in constitutive luck. As a foundation I draw from both Bernard Williams and Thomas Nagel’s classic handling of moral luck, generally. Within the philosophy of sport are similar explorations of this nexus by Robert Simon and David Carr that also factor into the present work. My intent is to put a new lens in front of a puzzle drawn (...)
